Margrete I’s cellar? A medieval brickbuilding in Lille Grønnegade in Roskilde
In 2019 an excavation surprisingly revealed the remains of a late medieval brick cellar at the south-eastern perimeter
of the medieval town of Roskilde. The site is far from any known medieval streets, but close to the medieval nunnery
of Our Lady some 40 m to the west of the site. The cellar was filled with debris from a medieval brick building,
which must have been on top of the cellar. The cellar was square, measuring ca. 5 x 5 m, and the walls had a width
of ca. 1 m. A brick stairway was at the north-western corner. Finds of Siegburg stoneware sherds in the floor layer,
along with known similar late medieval brick cellars and buildings in Roskilde and other Danish medieval towns,
dates the cellar to around 1400. A written source from the 15th century mentions a plot owned and built up by Queen
Margrete I (1375-1412) close to, and east of, the nunnery. It is thus likely that the cellar was part of the Queens
residence in Roskilde. Large donations from Queen Margrete I to the nunnery also indicates a close relationship to
this institution.
